We have returned from Adepticon and we're talking about it in this episode. A huge thanks goes to everyone who made the trip so special for us. We also take the time to field a listener question regarding their army's fluff.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 023

The Rogue Trader stands as a pillar of Imperial society at the same level as an Imperial Commander, Chapter Master, or Lord Inquisitor. It is their charge to solidify and broaden the influence of the Emperor of mankind.  If they make a tidy profit or build a power base of their own along the way, then what's not to like? In this episode, we look at the Rogue Trader and how to include them in your games of 40k including some new Battlefleet 40k ships and a new Rogue Trader Allied Detachment.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 022

In this episode, we take the concept of bringing the world of 40k to life on your tabletop and apply it directly to gaming materials by Games Workshop. In this case, we are rounding out our Battle of the Fang coverage by discussing the Space Wolves. Our aim with segments such as these is to help players break away from the "what's good" in a Codex and even away from a "how is this meant to be played" context and switch to a purely narrative perspective. We look at the background of an army, then critique the Codex entries as to their viability in regards to representing the army on the tabletop. We follow up with some lists that we feel might be representative of narrative uses of those rules.

Moreso than with any other format, we hope that you, the listener, will get involved in this discussion and offer up your own narrative Space Wolves lists. We are very much interested in what you think.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 018

The Milky Way Galaxy of Warhammer 40,000 teems with spacefaring vessels of all kinds and we try to come up with an approachable way of representing this on the tabletop with our take on the hit space combat system by Fantasy Flight Games. In addition, we help a listener resolve issues with their home-brew Space Marines Chapter in a new segment tentatively called "Fluff for Review".

From the dominion of the Old Ones to the reign of mankind, the story of space travel in the setting of 40k is also the story of the cultures of the Galaxy themselves.  In this episode, we explore how the myriad species in the Galaxy convey themselves across the black emptiness of space.  We also provide a couple of Warhammer 40,000 missions which you can use to link your narrative to space travel.
